Okay – as you know, I always strive to see the silver linings – mainly because they clue me in to the humungous dark cloud approaching.
And these past few weeks, I’ve not been at my best. Health, multiple set-backs regarding my plans and schedule, due to other people’s schedules, the weather, full moons and such have left me feeling that perhaps I’m not on the right path, after all.
But last night, the child-unit, recently returned from visiting his dad, hollered at me to come quick. I tread out in stocking feet, wondering what catastrophe has happened now.
I gazed where he was pointing:
These beautiful, unidentified-at-this-time flowers are located in an area scheduled for weeding and re-planting. Had I not been distracted from this area by a host of other troubles, the short, spiny weedy looking things would have been pulled three weeks ago and I would have missed out on knowing the beauty already planted there.
Would have ignorantly ripped from the earth a perennial that apparently, really likes it here and flourishes.
This latest discovery has reinforced my belief that procrastination is not the horrible thing it’s made out to be…
And made me grateful for all that kept me from completing this area’s project ‘On Time’.
This morning, I also looked at an area that was completed on schedule – I was told I most likely would not get any blooms this year, but that come fall, I can dig, separate, replant and maybe next year…
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! First bloom appearing!
